Times I Love You


Count all the fish in the ocean.

Count all the birds in the sky,

Count all the stars in the heavens,

Count all the leaves on the trees.

By the time you will have done so,

I will have thought "I love you"

that many times and more.


Count all the steps people have taken,

Count all the breaths they have breathed,

Count all the drips from all faucets,

Count all the waves of the sea,

By the time you will have done so,

I will have thought "I love you"

that many times and more.


Count all the blades of grasses,

Count all the ants in their travels,

Count all the sands at the seaside,

Count all the flowers in bloom,

By the time you will have done so,

I will have thought "I love you"

that many times and more.

Wow, you had me at counting the drips of all faucets - that's a great way to put it.
